Vestavia Hills High School (Ala.) announced Thursday that redshirt sophomore defensive tackles Jacob and James Edwards have been put on scholarship with Clemson football this semester.

The identical twins redshirted upon enrolling as preferred walk-ons in 2017. Last season, Jacob played two snaps versus Georgia Southern last year and also played on special teams in the NC State game. James played on special teams versus Furman and got on the field for a snap versus Georgia Southern.

Both were standout wrestlers at Vestavia Hills. James posted 24 tackles, with seven for loss as a senior.

They are both majoring in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management.
